Integrated media

Record audio & video messages within Canvas

 

What if lecturers could easily include audio or video comments as part of a course discussion or when marking student work? With Canvas, you can. All you need is a computer or mobile device with a microphone and camera and Canvas does the rest. Multimedia can be attached to personal messages, assignments, discussions and even marked work.

Fast marking

Connect assessment with learning goals

 

Because Canvas is cloud native, lecturers can view, score and provide feedback on student submissions from a computer or a tablet without time-consuming downloads or uploads. And integrated outcomes allow coursework to be connected to competencies, making assessing work easier. When aligned with rubrics, outcomes can even help improve lecturer feedback.

Automated tasks

Course management has never been easier

 

Repetition has its place in the learning process, but who needs practice rescheduling due dates? When you create or update an assignment in Canvas, it automatically populates the syllabus, markbook and calendar, so you can maximise your time by minimising repetitive tasks.
